Remembering Michelle Materre, Associate Professor of Media Studies and Film

We mourn the passing of the distinguished member of The New School community, Associate Professor of Media and Film, Michelle Materre. Michelle will be remembered as a tireless advocate and champion of films by and about women and people of color, a beloved teacher, an engaged university citizen, and a cherished colleague. No list of accomplishments or accolades, however, can fully capture how special she was to the countless students, colleagues and collaborators, fortunate enough to have been drawn into her circle. She was known for her generous, ebullient presence, bringing joy to everything she did. Her absence will be felt deeply, but her immense impact and legacy will live on and stay with us. Continue reading about Michelle’s impact here.

“Michelle and her legacy are emblematic of The New School—focused racial justice action, positive energy in shaping the future, and indefatigable belief in the power of community. She was deeply loved.” Mary Watson, Executive Dean of the Schools of Public Engagement.
